No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!

Last Week's Goals

1. Drink 1 nalgene of water at work. Achieved 4/5 Days! What a difference this makes. 

2. Brush teeth every night. Nope. I am horrible at this mainly because I fall asleep on the couch and then my husband wakes me up at midnight to actually go to bed...and I never want to brush my teeth at that point. It's embarrassing. But I'm going to get better!

3. 120 minutes of exercise. Completed, but it was relaxing exercise...not strenuous.

4. 5 minutes of stretching 2 days. Completed 2/2 days.

Some of my other small victories last week was really changing my habits. I park in a garage that has 6 levels and I've gotten in the bad habit taking the elevator if I'm on 4 or higher. No more! I took the stairs EVERY day and had to park on 4 or higher every day too. 

Weekly Weigh In: 175.2 YOWZAH! Up 1.6 pounds from last week. I think it was a little bit food, a little bit water and a little bit sodium. I had a great time at a family gathering last night that really made my weight skyrocket overnight (that's the sodium piece). BUT, I'm not going to worry about that. I'm going to continue seeking small victories and practice #wycwyc.

Let's continue to build on last week's victories! Read an interesting were the key takeaways I think others might appreciate:

  • Discipline done well is about action and not inaction. It’s about what you will do and not about what you will avoid doing. It works better to replace a behavior than eliminate it.
  • Instead of creating a list of rules to follow, create a list of actions that you will take.
  • Create a situation in which you become so busy with the good that there will be no room for the bad.
  • Take control. You are not governed by rule; you are the governor of your actions.

This Week's Goals

1. Drink 1.5 nalgenes of water at work. Pushing upward on this goal after a victory last week! Per the article--this goal is all about action to replace  behavior of going to the candy bowl.

2. Brush teeth 3 nights. Starting smaller since I didn't get this done last week.

3. 150 minutes of exercise. Adding 25% to my successful goal last week. Taking a walking coffee at work counts.

4. 5 minutes of stretching 3 days. Adding one extra day to last week's success.

5. Practice gratitude. Write in your gratitude journal twice.

Great job on hitting your goals last week. I know from experience how incredible stretching can be for your body. My dr has me doing some since I have FHP(forward head position) and doing these simple stretches has improved my posture & my flexibility especially in my shoulders and neck is greatly improved. I love goal #5. I try to practice this everyday to remind me how special my life really is. Keeps me from focusing on the negative crap.
